    Do we know when they will be in the stores or is pre-order the only way you can get them?

    I didn't hear them mention in-store availability... just pre-order, and ship next week...

    The stuff usually hits the store the same day that it starts shipping. At this point, it’s a gelatinous ship date of "next week". They will definitely NOT be available in stores until then.

    If we can preorder for in store pick-up I will probably do that. Guaranteed to get it on first day but don't have to stand in line. We saw some people do this for the 6 launch and it seemed to work pretty slick...

    I'll be getting up at 1:45AM to pre-order. Rumors of limited availability abound on this iPad due to the difficulty of producing the new laminated screen, so I am taking absolutely no chances! 64GB White/Silver.

    If you pre-order to pick up at the store, do you have to pay for it online or when you get to the store?

    Dang, I was hoping to get another paycheck to cover this. Oh well, it looks like I'll be heading to the store on release, whenever that is.

    Yep. You pre-order it and pay for it. Then you can choose to have it shipped or held for in-store pick up.

    Ok, thanks guys! Do you think in-store availability will be good on launch or no?

    Oh and I am planning on heading down at about 5 PM or so on the 24th (launch day).

    No clue. I would expect Apple to handle the iPad launch similarly to the iPhone. Separate stock for pre-orders and in-store sales. But I have not heard anything about expected stock or availability.

    As long as there are no lines forming the day before, I assume I'd be fine, but who knows? I just want to pop in after school and pick it up.

    It obviously won't be as popular as the iPhone 6, so I would assume I'd get one if I went later in the evening.

    Hard to say, but I don't really see a lot of people looking to get them. I remember when the first iPad mini came out, there was barely a line at the Apple Store. But who knows.

    Yeah, the only iPad I remember there being a line for was the original. Besides that, there has been little to no line for the other iPads.
